High At Last,
This review is from: High [Digipak] (Audio CD)
Distinctly familiar melodies, lyrics and sounds usher in what is perhaps my favourite and most played album of the last two years.
Combining the aching poetics of the best of 'Hats' with the adventurous electronic landscapes of 'A Walk Across The Rooftops' and the sonic clarity of 'Peace At Last', for me, 'High' is a potent and emotionally vital synthesis of the best of the Blue Nile's previous albums.
The exquisite domestic musings of opener 'Days Of Our Lives', alongside the heartbreakingly fragile 'Because Of Toledo' and the epic title track provide my personal highlights.
A productive band, maybe not. An important one, always.
